Hi, I’m Katie Drane! Welcome to my blog! Fun Home Things is all about the stuff that makes home so special. Great food, family shenanigans, pretty and meaningful decor, cute holiday crafts that you’ll treasure for years, and tips and tricks to make life just a little less nuts.
You should proably know that we’re very real here. My grandma’s house was my favorite destination spot and I live in a 3 bedroom 90s ranch and wouldn’t have it any other way, even after just welcoming our 4th baby.
Life is nuts. Our house is nuts. My favorite China pattern is whatever Dollar General is currently printing on their paper plates because with a 6-person household, I’m just not willing to make the time to do a bunch of dishes right now in addition to everything else. If this is you, we will get along great.
If you want a great casserole recipe, I can hook you up. If you like fun seasonal crafts, DIY and decorating ideas, and tips to make your life easier, this blog is for you. If you are ‘doing Dave’ like we are, looking for encouragement and tips to save money and get out of debt, welcome! You’ve come to the right place.
If you want something Fancy. Posh. Glam. Swanky. Lavish. You’re going to be terribly disappointed. Fun Home Things is more like your favorite hoodie that is just too comfy to quit.
I created this blog 5 years ago as a creative outlet after getting remarried and becoming a stay-at-home mom to Sophie (who was 4 at the time). Three kids later, Fun Home Things has grown into this amazing work-from-home gig, complete with its own office. Click here to see the office updates!
So now, not only do I get to blog for a living, but I also travel around the region and teach other people how to start blogging!
Some sessions last an hour…
Others are more in depth like Blog Academy and last all day.
Being able to share what I know and love is so energizing. It’s one of my favorite parts about what I do.
Life has changed a lot in the few years since I started this blog, for my personal life as well. I was blessed with 3 healthy babies. Here are my 4 hilarious, spirited and precious babies–Sophie (10), Emmie (4), Jack (3), and Luke (1).
So sit back, check out the blog and let me know what you think, I would love to hear from you.
